New Year, a new chapter, a new verse or the same old story? Ultimately, we write it, the choice is ours.
Happy New Year everyone!
Apologies for the silence over the past few months, I have taken some much needed time to reflect on my priorities and took some time out for my mental health, I am feeling much better and I’d like to thank those who offered their support.
So without further ado, with a new year comes plenty of new opportunities and with it being a sparkly new decade, I fully intend to make the most of it!
Plus an exclusive announcement about HR acts of kindness!
You must be used to these videos now and no I’m not getting any better at recording them haha! In this week’s video I have received a question from a contact on Twitter regarding the bridge between level 3 and level 7 CIPD qualifications, is level 5 worth it? Or do we go straight to 7 (do not pass go or collect £200)
In the video, you will also hear some buzz around HR acts of kindness and a secret (not so secret now!) announcement about an exciting project coming soon!
I chose the Disney theme for this week’s video, not because it is all magical but because it took a lot of hard work, determination and commitment to make Disney the success that we see today, it all started with a dream and a CIPD level 7 qualification is no exception!
“I truly believe that onboarding is an art. Each new employee brings with them a potential to achieve and succeed. To lose the energy of a new hire through poor onboarding is an opportunity lost.”
As part of my CIPD studies, I recently wrote a piece about the importance of the onboarding process and how crucial it is to get it right.
Have you ever started a role full of excitement and potential, only to find a few weeks or months later the spark just wears off? Well research suggests that without adequate support or a comprehensive induction, employees often don’t end up staying with the company past four months if the onboarding process isn’t thoroughly carried out.
For employers, a failed onboarding process can be equally frustrating, time consuming and not to mention expensive!
“Life truly begins after you have put your house in order”
Can you believe that it is July already? It only seems like yesterday that we were seeing in the new year with fresh eyes and setting those all important goals for the year. As we are now over halfway through the year, we often have lost sight of those aims and resolutions, and whilst we’ve generally been busy bees, it feels like we’re getting nowhere fast, sound familiar?
In this short post, I’m sharing with you that I am feeling like I’ve lost my focus a little, I’ve made no secret that times have been a little tough lately, but I’m finally starting to see more clearly so I can focus on what is important, one step at a time.
So here are a few things that may help you stop procrastinating and start doing!
